Season 1 – Episode 15: Student Privacy: Higher Education

A 2021 Educause article showed that while many believe students who have grown up with technology are not concerned with the privacy for their data, research shows otherwise. A 2018 Pew Research Center survey found that almost all Americans 18 to 24 years old utilize social media, ranging from YouTube to Twitter. A 2019 Insider Higher Ed survey found that 46% of faculty taught at least one course online. As technology within education continues to grow, and the world becomes more connected through the internet, student privacy will continue to be a topic of discussion. In the U.S., specific laws and regulations aim to protect student privacy, such as the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).
